mottled wakerobin, Trillium discolor

First you take a selection of modifiers - mottled, pale yellow, small yellow, colorless, or discolored. Attach them to trillium, wakerobin or toadshade. Then you have given this species its common name. Apparently it is rare enough that we haven't begun to settle on a common name. This plant only grows in forests along the upper Savannah River in GA, NC, and SC. Edgewood Gardens, Chester Co PA, 4/21/21. Trillium family, Trilliaceae.
